Dwelling in a House of Riches

posted by Prayables

Wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Three wonderful words that can lead to financial security; a three step process.

What’s does your blueprint look like for financial success? Is your plan for riches based on something extraordinary happening? Are you searching for a handsome wealthy orphan to marry? A hefty inheritance from a distant relative? Or maybe, once upon a time, you dropped hot coffee on your lap and you dream of a happily-ever-after, courtesy of McDonalds.

If none of those scenarios seem likely, you’re probably like most of us, who will find financial success through a combination of hard work, sound investing, regular savings and moderate spending. You’ll also need the tools of wisdom, understanding and knowledge to earn and save money:

1.    Understand what it is you need
2.    Gather enough information for clear and certain knowledge
3.    Rely on your own experience to bring you to a place of wisdom

With God by your side, and prayer in your heart, you will dwell in a house of riches all the days of your life.

THROUGH WISDOM A HOUSE IS BUILT, AND BY UNDERSTANDING IT IS ESTABLISHED; AND BY KNOWLEDGE THE ROOMS SHALL BE FILLED WITH ALL PRECIOUS AND PLEASANT RICHES.
Proverbs 24:3-4

Giving Out Years

posted by Prayables

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

“Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.”

The dog said: “That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?”

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

“Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.”

The monkey said: “Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform.How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?”

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

“You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.”

The cow said: “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?”

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:

“Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.”

But man said: “Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?”

“Okay,” said God, “You asked for it.”

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.

For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.

For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.

And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

A Civil Tongue

posted by Prayables

My earliest memory from school is this:
“It’s a free country.”
Later on, I recall:
“Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.”
What I didn’t know then was the underlying truth –
We’re mostly soul, wrapped in flesh and blood.

Please send a few things
from bygone days to help us connect,
like common courtesy, tact and gentility.
Allow us to remember that we are a civilization,
And as such, really should be civil in our discourse.
Soften the tone for the sake of the children.

Bless us as we breathe life
into the world with our words.

Shark

posted by Prayables

There is this atheist swimming in the ocean. All of the sudden he sees this shark in the water, so he starts swimming towards his boat.

As he looks back he sees the shark turn and head towards him. His boat is a ways off and he starts swimming like crazy. He’s scared to death, and as he turns to see the jaws of the great white beast open revealing its teeth in a horrific splendor, the atheist screams, “Oh God! Save me!”

In an instant time is frozen and a bright light shines down from above. The man is motionless in the water when he hears the voice of God say, “You are an atheist. Why do you call upon me when you do not believe in me?”

Aghast with confusion and knowing he can’t lie the man replies, “Well, that’s true I don’t believe in you, but how about the shark? Can you make the shark believe in you?”

The Lord replies, “As you wish,” and the light retracted back into the heavens and the man could feel the water begin to move once again.

As the atheist looks back he can see the jaws of the shark start to close down on him, when all of sudden the shark stops and pulls back.

Shocked, the man looks at the shark as the huge beast closes its eyes and bows its head and says, “Thank you Lord for this food for which I am about to receive…”
